Ant McPartlin's estranged wife Lisa Armstrong has reportedly refused a payoff to go to court.

It is alleged that Ant wanted to reach an agreement before I begin A Celebrity, as Lisa is entitled to a portion of Ant's £ 62 million assets.

However, Lisa and Ant may be in court after the make-up artist is said to have rejected the proposed divorce agreement, according to The Daily Mail.
